Find it at: Pine Reserve, Aberfoyle Park
The picturesque spot down south has had an upgrade in 2023, and doesn’t it look sensational! There are no toilets sadly but plenty of shade, water fountains and park benches. There is play equipment for all ages including an array of ninja course style ropes and climbing equipment. Keeping with the pine theme, the equipment is primarily wood and rope based. I spent so much time here as a kid and it’s always had a ninja course style theme but in that typical green and gold metal playground furniture.
There is also a seperate netball ring and a seperate basketball court. These have been here for years and no upgrade to them but good to see they are still holding strong!
The main playground isn’t fenced, and is a part of a relatively large pine forest, so keeping a close eye on kids is important. For the little ones though there is a small structure and swing set located in a fully fenced section of the park, directly next to the main playground.
There is also a massive flying fox edition as well! The perfect playground for summer as it is well shaded and nice and cool! The aesthetic here is spot on for a relaxing afternoon watching the kids run about.
